The Great Hoax- Imitation red sky ep {2012}




The great Hoax: âImitation red skyâ
Imitation red sky is the 2nd ep by the Great Hoax aka Nick Swanson an infamous song writer, musician, and guru of D.I.Y.
The songs themes go from compulsive liars, religious satire, futuristic predictions, philosophy, metaphoric places, society,the ressession, and his own life experiences.
Many of the songs are new composistions, but âPuppyâ and âLonesome Townâ are re records from their 1st ep Shapes{2009}.
âthe majority of the songs were recorded a few days before I left for Auckland {for a change of scene} and were then produced in my YMCA room just off Kârd, then I later returned to Wellington where I mastered the songs for an ep called âNumbersâ which didnât seem to resinate with many people, so reworked the songs added some new ones which became âImiatation red skyâ, the name coming from bob dylans avant garde album âUnder the red skyâ and also the idea that everything we see is just an imitation of reliety, which where the name for our 1st ep{shapes 2009} came from, meaning what we see with the naked eye are shapes and our brain interprates it to what we feel we should seeâ- Nick Swanson.
âThe songs were recorded relatively quickly in an afternoon and then different parts were put in or done again, I was trying to stay away from drum machines but in the end I ended up using them on the opening tracks but I added home made percussion ie âa pepper shakerâ , âclapsâ and banging on the back of my guitarâ for a bongo sound. Most of the music is organic apart from some of the drum sequencing and synths and effects that are quietly in the backgroundâ.
The ep is currently available from amplifier.co.nz and bandcamp.com, but tracks of course will be given away through amplifier, soundcloud, and bandcamp at certain moments. The cd is also available at gigs.
